Fiberoptic Patch Cords
LumeDEL fiberoptic patch cords are fiber optic cables terminated with fiber optic connectors on both ends. These patch cords easily connect to NewDEL light sources and accessories. The fiber cables contain single strand, multimode, step-index optical fiber with 1 mm core diameter.
Fiber patch cords are terminated on both ends with standard SMA 905 connectors. SMA style connectors are most commonly used with multimode fibers, especially large core fibers. This connector is characterized by a 1/4-36 UNS-2B thread coupling mechanism and a cylindrical ferrule of 1/8 inch nominal diameter.
LumeDEL plastic optical fiber (POF) patch cords FP63P and FP58P are more flexible and provide very high numerical aperture (NA) which provides the best optical coupling efficiency to LEDs to deliver maximum output power. UV transmitting fiber patch cord FP50H uses a High -OH content silica core for a spectral range of 300 nm to 1200 nm at NA 0.50 .
High-OH silica fiber can experience significant transmission loss when exposed to UV radiation, a process known as solarization. This occurs from exposure to light below 300 nm such as with NewDEL models N275 (275 nm) and N280 (280 nm). For these LED sources, the Model FP22U fiber patch cord uses hydrogen loaded, High -OH silica to provide the best resistance to solarization. And for other UV wavelengths, the FP22U can offer both superior internal transmission and prolonged performance when NA 0.22 is acceptable.
